Federal authorities say they caught a 14-year-old Arizona girl trying to smuggle over a pound of methamphetamine into the country.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say the girl tried going through a pedestrian border crossing in Nogales with the meth strapped to her groin under her clothing.

The girl is from Nogales, Arizona, although it's unclear if she's a U.S. citizen.

The meth was worth about $3,200.
